I would really like QX to work well, because I think it would cool to be
able to seamlessly run X and Gtk applications as well as Qt.  At the
moment, however, my observations (in my case on GTA04) are broadly
similar to yours, i.e. it doesn't really work.

I'm planning to work a bit on this, but time for it is limited so please
don't hold your breath.

In terms of overall structure, I'd prefer if a QX-requiring application
could be launched normally from the app (or games) menu - instead of
specially via the QX application - and also that the business of
any required installation or configuration was separated out from simply
running a particular application.  Does anyone have thoughts on that?
